    Excluding the 1200, AFAIK the 600 has the largest front element. 160mm or something like that

    ok, let me re phrase.

    yes, 82mm is big on the 16-35ii, but the glass element is small, there is a lot of black around the glass.

    what lens has the biggest glass element in mm?

    Excluding the super telephotos, gotta be either the 85L or 135L. Both have 72mm filter threads, but the front element on both takes up the entire opening.
